The Chrysler Foundation is reaching out to help Colorado rebuild roads, washed out by extreme flooding. The foundation is donating $50,000 to the First Response Team of America, a disaster relief organization that is working in Colorado to clear and rebuild impassable roads.
Jason Stoicevich, who heads up the Fiat brand for Chrysler, says “We hope that the Chrysler Foundation’s support will help to bring prompter relief to the affected areas in Colorado and to the families that call the Centennial State home.”
The Chrysler Foundation has partnered with the First Response Team of America before, most notably following the Oklahoma tornadoes, in May.
Colorado was hit with record flooding in mid-September. 19,000 homes and businesses were damaged or destroyed. Dozens of major roads and bridges were washed out.
Transportation in many areas of Colorado is still hampered by washed out roads and bridges. During the federal government shutdown, the state is paying the National Guard to continue the much needed rebuilding.
